Look: I am eager to learn stuff I don't know--which requires actively courting and posting smart disagreement.

But as you will understand, I don't like to post things that mischaracterize and are aimed to mislead.

Heh. Yeah. The Papenfuhrer's departure won't cause much of a change in Church policy since he selected the majority of the cardinals who are going to elect his replacement, but at least his replacement won't be a real genuine WW2-vintage Nazi...

Wish I could say that Papenfuhrer was mein own invention, but it was in use several years before I snarfed it up and started using it myself for Herr Ratzo.
